Arts At Glendale
Posted: October 31, 2014.
Glendale Middle school hosted the Utah Gifted Music School Autumn Concert on October 31st 2014. Featuring the music of Antonio Vivaldi, child musicians as young as eleven entertained the audience with their musical talents. The showcase was a promotional event for some exciting new developments in Utah music education. Beginning in Spring 2015, a pilot music program will start offering music education in kindergarden through 8th grade, in select Salt Lake City School District schools. Mountain View Elementary, one of Glendale's feeder schools will be a part of the new program. Click here to watch the performance.
Glendale The Beautiful
Glendale Middle School opened on August 25, 2006. The innovative, contemporary and spacious building design, is the perfect canvas for the artwork by local artists and students, who would soon call Glendale's walls and pillars their home. Take a tour of Glendale's beautiful artwork.

Dear Parents and Glendale Community Members:
As 2014 draws to a close, Glendale students and teachers are busy testing and doing assessments. Some of these activities are a practice run for the official SAGE tests, scheduled for February 2015. But whichever assessment they are involved in, we want Glendale students to do their best work and show what they know!
Please encourage your son or daughter to work hard, be at school on time and on-task in their classes. The study habits which they develop in school, will help your son or daughter be prepared to successfully graduate university and enter the workforce.
What are the SAGE tests?
Starting last spring, the State Board of Education required all Utah students, beginning in the third grade, to take new state tests. The tests, called SAGE (Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence), are designed to measure more challenging state standards in mathematics, English language arts, and science.
They are completely different from former statewide tests. Therefore,SAGE and CRT results cannot be compared.
Please keep in mind:
- SAGE testing is a completely new platform with a dramatic increase in rigor and expectations for students.
- Although SAGE scores are anticipated to be lower, we want you to know schools and teachers are working diligently to prepare students to meet the new rigorous requirements.
- Salt Lake City School District schools and teachers are making plans to share individual student results with parents and help them understand the new tests and reports.
- Teachers will be sharing individual student reports with parents sometime during the next few weeks.
We encourage families to visit the following sites for more information, sample test questions, or for resources to support student learning.
